Fracking's Slow-Motion Train Wreck Revealed In New Report via @cleantechnica

What’s spooky is the horizontal wells are getting longer and the fracking intervals are getting closer. For instance, Marcellus wells at the onset of the boom were less than a mile long in horizontal run. New wells are approaching and exceeding two miles. Fracking stages use to be about between 500 and 1,000 feet apart. They are now close to 200 feet apart. I’m not sure if states increased bonding requirement for plugging and abandonment. Pennsylvania had a ridiculously low bond requirement of $2,500 per well initially. It may have gone up to $10,000. The longer the well and more fractures could mean more problems to deal with after production stops. And higher costs.
